If your banana is a bit brown or your lettuce is a little limp, an Ottawa organization wants you to think twice before you throw out your food.

Foodsharing Ottawa works with residents, grocery stores and other food sellers to promote sharing food that's still edible to prevent it from going to waste.

"If you consider that almost half of all the food production gets wasted at some point in the food production cycle, then I think we need to do something about it," said founder Carolin Ross on CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning.
